No one should be held back by negative stereotypes about who they are, who they love, or how they express themselves. HeForShe is working to expand human dignity and freedom for us all.

Be the Change

Prejudice is more than just an attitude, it’s a challenge to our personal freedom. Here are a few ways to stand up for diversity.

Ad Watch

Consumers have a voice. Use the hashtag #NotBuyingIt from the Representation Project to call out companies that use offensive stereotypes to sell their products.

Be Real

Masculinity doesn't mean ignoring your feelings. It takes strength to speak up when you're dealing with difficult emotions - and to help others deal with them, too.

Free &Equal

Join the UN's Free & Equal campaign to support global human rights for all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
